Coming soon to an inbox near you: Netflix scam email

Netflix customers beware-a new online phishing scams is targeting people's bank accounts.

The nearly 110 million Netflix subscribers around the world may need to pay a little more attention than usual to their emails over the next few days.

The Netflix email scam, which is designed neatly to look authentic, informs the customers that their account will be canceled unless they update their account information.

There is also a link that takes subscribers to a fake Netflix page seeking login information and a credit card number, according to MailGuard, a global SaaS email and web security company. For a moment we might assume the same as Netflix's latest subscriber count is roughly the same. The email contains a link with the subject line "Your suspension notification".

It then prompts users to click a red button that reads "RESTART MEMBERSHIP", which opens up a mock Netflix webpage that asks users to log in to their account.

Netflix confirmed that the emails are fake and don't come from the company.

If you receive an email that appears to be from the Netflix team, be extra vigilant before following the instructions within.

Netflix sends out emails to its subscribers from time to time. Instead, it's trying to steal your credit card information.

Complete with Netflix logos and a legitimate looking layout, the bogus email is a far cry from the mistake-ridden emails often associated with scammers - leading tech experts to urge users to be extra cautious.

The service said it employs numerous protective measure to detect fraud and keep accounts secure.
